1.After age 40, almost all adults develop presbyopia – a vision condition in which the crystalline lens of the eye loses its flexibility, making it difficult to focus on close objects.
2.Presbyopia is a natural part of the eye’s aging process.
3.Some signs of presbyopia include:
a.the tendency to hold reading materials farther away than before
b.blurred vision at normal reading distance
c.eye fatigue along with headaches when doing close-up work
4.The aging cornea and lens in the eye become less clear causing light to scatter inside the eye, which increases glare and reduces contrast sensitivity — the ability to discern subtle differences in brightness of objects — making it harder to see at night.
